About this title


Internationally acclaimed and winner of the Colorado Book Award this field guide has over 400 beautifully colored photographs featuring the geology, history, wildflowers, and wildlife of Colorado and the Colorado Plateau, which includes Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico.

"It is a must-have for anyone intrigued by the area." Daily Sentinel.

This exceptional one-of-a-kind guide was written because of a need for a "user friendy" field guide that teachers, families, tourists, and children could use in the classrooms, at home, vacations, and on field trips. It is being used in schools around the nation and internationally to teach about our area. Now children along with adults can discover the west with a book in their hands. This very successful book was created with the help of children and teachers from Tope and Lincoln Park Elementary Schools, the Colorado National Monument, Division of Wildlife, Mesa College, the Museum of Western Colorado, Denver Museum of Natural History, school curriculum, and local botanists, biologists, geologists, and archeologists.
